Peter V. Taberner's Aphrodisiacs: The Science and the Myth PDF

The making plans and writing of this ebook has taken fairly longer than I had initially meant; what begun as a modest literary venture for 2 second-year clinical scholars has increased over 8 years to develop into an entire booklet. the subject material lent itself all too simply to a sen­ sationalist technique but, nonetheless, a strictly clinical technique may most likely have ended in a lifeless dry textual content of little curiosity to the overall reader.

21 Handy Chemistry 7/8/13 2:44 PM Page 22 turns out that electrons residing in the same atomic orbital must have opposite spin angular momenta. This is a consequence of a physical principle known as the Pauli Exclusion Principle. What do atomic orbitals look like? There are three main shapes of orbitals relevant to most of chemistry, and these are referred to as s, p, and d orbitals. The designations s, p, and d are abbreviations for sharp, principle, diffuse, and fundamental, which have historical significance describing results of early experiments to probe the electronic structure of atoms.

The cold metal is able to conduct heat away from your hand through the entire object quickly, making it feel colder than the air around you. What is a boiling point? The technical definition of boiling point is the temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid phase equals the pressure of the surrounding gas (atmospheric pressure usually). This is a precise way of saying the temperature at which a liquid turns to vapor. A comparison of the Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin scales. What molecular properties lead to higher boiling points?

These distances are on the order of 10–10 meters. What are the basic units of pressure? Unlike units of length and temperature, pressure is reported in at least six common units. The pascal (abbreviated Pa) is the official standard unit, but bar, millimeters of 39 Handy Chemistry 7/8/13 2:44 PM Page 40 mercury (mmHg), standard atmospheres (atm), torr, and pounds per square inch (psi) are all used in different areas. How do planes stay in the air? Airplanes are very heavy, so the force required to balance gravity and keep them in the air must be large.
